Painting the metal garage door
I am a newbie in painting and has decided to DIY jobs at home.
I would like to paint the metal garage door at home.
I have a couple of questions before I start. I will appreciate if some one can answer them:
1) The garage door is getting rust at the bottom, what should I do about that
2) The garage door is painted brown right now and we want white paint, should I remove the brown paint and then apply the new paint. If yes, how I can remove the old paint.
If you can advise the steps for this job.
Thanks in advancve and I am confident that i will get some answers
This web sites search engine is a great tool.
Sand/grind the rust off, wash the door with a solution of TSP and water per directions, apply a primer for metal, such as Sherwin Williams Procryl, apply 2 coats of an acrylic DTM(direct to metal paint)
Thanks for your suggestions.
I have started the project. Did sanding/priming in this morning and hopefully will do the paint tomorrow.
Again, thanks to everyone.
